One of the most stressful and daunting decisions you as a student will have to make, is where you are going to live.
Deciding whether to continue living in Halls, or whether you would like to move into a rented property, is a difficult decision. It’s a decision that determines where you call home for at least one academic year.
However, your Students’ Union, Undeb Bangor, is committed to helping you make that decision. We have teamed up with the University’s Halls and Housing Office, in preparing our ‘Don’t Panic’ campaign.
This campaign, which will be held between 13 and 15 November 2018, will reiterate a simple message: there is no need to panic, we want you to take your time to sign.
There is a surplus of student accommodation available in Bangor. We don’t want you to rush into signing a contract, as there is plenty of time for you to look around the different options.
Over the course of this campaign, we will be providing you with factual information and advice, so that you are fully aware of the different types of accommodation that is available. We will be outlining when and where you can sign up to a contract.
You will be able to chat to us at various locations across Bangor, such as Ffriddoedd, St. Mary’s, Main Arts, and Deiniol library.
Besides information, you will be able to find refreshments on our stalls. On the final day of the campaign, 15 November, there will even be a Bouncy Castle!
The campaign will also be promoting Marks Out Of Tenancy, a house reviewing platform. This website allows you to rate a property, based on the landlord, estate agent, location, and the property itself.
Mark Barrow, Undeb Bangor’s Vice President for Education, who is leading this campaign, said: ‘’I know from personal experience that choosing where to live can be a stressful decision. There are lots of things you have to take into account.
‘’I’m really pleased that the Halls and Housing Office are helping with this campaign. It’s really important that we let students know where they can find reliable information, and reiterate that there is no need to panic.’’
